The defending World Champion Dallas Maverick are going to try and Silence the Oklahoma Thunder in the first round of the NBA play-offs and it may not be such an easy task. The Mavs know the Thunder have been making a lot of noise this season. Kevin Durant the NBA’s scoring champion and Russell Westbrook may have their own ideas how to DE-thrown the Mavs in round one. Dirk Nowitzki knows this Thunder team not only made a lot of noise this season they are also a very good team.
For Nowitzki and his Mavericks, it is going to take their very best to get past Oklahoma. Nowitzki has a way of responding in high pressure situations, lets not forget this is a different Dallas Mavericks team than the one that won the Championship last season. The Mavericks lost Chandler and guard J.J. Barea to free agency and may not be able to respond the way they did last season. For the Nowitzi led Mavericks to get past the Thunder it is going to take great play and Nowitzi is going to have to do what he has always done best, come though under pressure.
